Health is not a destination you get to…
It’s a path you stay on.
Forget what you think you know about nutrition and weight loss. Anyone who’s ever struggled to lose weight has probably been told that eating better and exercising more is the key.
There’s a major factor that so many diet plans and nutritionists leave out…the mind.
The key to long-term success lies in the treatment of your body and your mind, together as one.
Learning to manage your thoughts and training your brain to think differently is what makes LaRocca Medical Weight Loss different from other medical weight loss plans.
What is Medical Weight Loss?
Medical weight loss is defined as the process of losing weight under the guidance of a doctor.
The physician uses their knowledge and medical experience to help someone struggling to lose weight to create a realistic plan that meets their unique circumstances.
In addition, Doctors can also help you find and keep the motivation you need to succeed in your weight loss journey.
There are 3 primary components to medical weight loss;
- Initial consultation: We’ll go over your medical history, current lifestyle, and weight loss goals
- Behavior changes: We’ll pinpoint specific changes that will need to be implemented to see results and discuss how to make them.
- Weight loss medications: Weight loss medication may be prescribed to help complement the recommended weight loss plan.
What makes LaRocca Medical Weight Loss different is that I include a fourth component:
- Mind management: I’ll give you the tools to change the way you think about food and weight loss. This is truly the key to success.
What is the difference between medical weight loss and other weight loss plans?
1. Physician Guided
Medical weight loss plans are unique in that they are designed and monitored by a licensed physician. Having a doctor create a weight loss plan and monitor your progress provides a unique, individualized weight loss program that is not only specific to your needs but is health-focused and closely monitored keeping your current and past medical history at the forefront.
Doctors typically have 11 to 18 years of education and training, making them far more knowledgeable about the topic of weight loss than any fitness professional or wellness coach.
This also makes them able to help identify and treat any medical barriers that could be preventing you from losing weight.
2. Focused on YOU
Having a personalized weight loss plan that is specific to your lifestyle, your goals, and your personal struggles helps the plan to be more successful.
Not only is it easier to implement a personalized plan, but it is also much easier to stay on the plan than it is with a one-size-fits-all diet (keto, paleo, etc.) or weight loss program.
3. Support and accountability throughout the process.
There are weight loss plans available that offer a health coach that will help hold people accountable, but the individualized attention of an experienced physician provides an outstanding benefit that other weight loss programs simply can’t match.
Having personalized support from a doctor makes medical weight loss programs an invaluable method for achieving a healthy weight.
A program that works for you, that fits your lifestyle.
From the comfort and privacy of your own home, I’ll guide you through every step with regular check-ins and coaching sessions. (Psst…I have a podcast too)

Dr. LaRocca in the press
For Kristine LaRocca, D.O., owner of LaRocca Medical Weight Loss in Greenville, DE, a research project she participated in on weight management and Type 2 diabetes as a resident in ChristianaCare’s Family Medicine Residency Program helped her find her practice niche.
Delaware Public Media:
“I think the struggle is that people don’t know where to start,” said LaRocca. “And so, showing that like, okay, establishing care with a primary care physician or also referred to as a family medicine physician is really the first place in navigation for their healthcare.”
LaRocca says their behavioral health unit is doing double duty as social workers, they’re helping many patients apply for Medicaid and find local doctors for follow up care.
Go Solo Interview:
Go Solo is a website that frequently features in-depth interviews with entrepreneurs. I’m so thrilled to have been chosen to be featured this month.
“If you have something to offer the world, don’t hold it back.”
